Here's some text from Shige Hasegawa:

Theme of the show is Flower (Hana in Japanese ). And I use Origami (folding paper) technique to design the table and the light.

Hana table is made by 5 plywood legs. These legs are all same shape and they stand by themselves. It has no screws or nails to hold the 1100φglass top. Also it will be easy packing.

Hana stretch is made by iron frame and stretch fabric. The fabric has zipper and can be taken off and washed. Also has color variations.
